  • Court records show that a Phillips County constable plans to change his plea in a federal gun case. The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reports (http://bit.ly/18cVyiQ ) that James Weldon King is scheduled to appear in federal court Dec. 13 to change his plea in a case that accuses him of illegally hoarding unregistered automatic rifles and being a felon in possession of a firearm. King had previously pleaded not guilty to the charges. According to allegations in an indictment, FBI agents found that King that had been carrying a gun since his election last year as constable in Phillips County, even though he had previous felony convictions. The indictment alleges that agents executing a search warrant found several loaded guns and partially assembled machine guns in King's home. ___ Information from: Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, http://www.arkansasonline.com
